RStudio file association doesn't work in Windows 10 Enterprise?


I have installed Rstudio 3.5.1 and i cannot associate R(.r) files to Rstudio in Windows 10.

Anyone else with this problem?

Ops I got R 3.5.1 and RStudio 1.1.463

I fixed my problem doing this command in CMD with admin rights :slight_smile:

Assoc .r=rfile


Ftype rfile="C:\Program Files\RStudio\bin\rstudio.exe" %1

I just installed on another machine Rstudio that has Windows 10 Entreprise and i had to manually associate ".r" files to RStudio.

This issue need to be added in known bugs.

I just did what you asked.

I think one of my users put us in error.

his files of R had the extension .r and as i can see R extensions are .rdata?

that why i had to manually associate rstudio to .r files

.r (or more commonly .R) files are scripts.

.RData are R workspace data files.

well then the .r file is not associate with r studio or R. rdata are.
